Nintendo has pulled a brand new IP for the Nintendo Wii U out of the bag at E3 2014, entitled Splatoon. This colourful multiplayer title will launch some time in 2015 and puts you in control of bizarre half human, half squid creatures armed with ink. You’ll need to swap between squid and person in order to utilise both character’s skills. For example, you’ll only be able to shoot ink when you’re a person, and then when you’re a squid you can swim and leap between ink pools.
The Tesco UK website has suggested the Uncharted 4 release date will occur in July 2015. Ahead of any official word from Sony, Tesco might have just outed the Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End release date as July 31, 2015. That would be a Friday too, which is the usual day of release for games in the UK. So far, the only official release date for the eagerly anticipated game has been a loose 2015 window. But now we might have a better idea on the release thanks to Tesco Direct.
Gearbox Software has revealed that “every game ships with compromises”, regardless of its success. The developer behind such titles as Borderlands and Brothers in Arms has revealed a rather large industry secret — that shipped games are far from perfect. Speaking during the Develop Conference in Brighton, Gearbox CEO Randy Pitchford said that a developer’s job is not to make the perfect game. “Our mission is not to realise our vision. Our mission is to entertain other people. And so you have to ship.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
